The mixed knot looks great in the Culmak.

Like Tieste said, I might try steaming the knot out, sanding down the interior to a smooth finish, painting it, then putting the knot back it. I think the result will looks much better, especially for such a limited handle.

I'm interested in where you got the HMW knot and your impressions of it also.
Nice handles you have there. Lucite can be a real pain to restore because every little scratch will show up & it can also 'craze' (little stress cracks) with too much heat but it is pretty resilant. The scratches will buff out with a wet sandpaper progression and painting the hole will help hide the micro scratches.
It looks like a very comfortable handle to hold and the Culmak is a beauty as well. Congratulations!

Thank you teiste. You are %100 right with your words. I try to paint but since im not pro with this so i used white enamal with few coats but it doesnt work.
I was in a hurry so i glued but i really dont like .looks very bad now and i thought so much to post it but i did to learn friends opinions.
I have to take out the knot with steaming but im afraid the knot is little bit weak so i think i will use it as it is.
Btw this are same hmw knot with my other thread, loyal.
